Scout Picks - Bus Team

Scout Picks Gameweek 38 early selection: Spurs and Chelsea triple-ups

We’ve put together our Scout Picks ‘bus team’ ahead of Gameweek 38 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

For those who haven’t seen this article series before, it’s essentially a rough, first draft of our regular picks, which get finalised and published much closer to the deadline.

We are limited to a £83.5m budget for our starting XI (making it affordable for those whose team values are low), although the bench options aren’t just unplayable fodder as you might have in your own squads or Free Hit teams.

The final picks will stay as they are and cement our weekly selection based on the Scout Squad long-list entries, midweek minutes and fresh injury updates but this ‘bus team’ article – a term coined by the Always Cheating boys – will discuss the players who are likely to be in the running.


Here it is, then: our early thoughts on the runners and riders up for selection in Gameweek 38, followed by the preliminary picks themselves.

Some of the graphics found in this piece come from our Premium Members Area, where is still a seven-day trial on offer.

    If Salah is declared fit for GW38,

    A. Ignore Son
    B. KDB to Son
    C. still Salah to Son

      B

      1. NABIL - FPL otai

        Hmm actually B is my least preferred option. Think KDB will go big at home again, plus nailed to start unlike Mo. Son otoh might get frustrated again with 5 atb

      1. NABIL - FPL otai

        Yep hard to resist Son, plus Mo might get his minutes managed

      Might have to take an extra hit for Diaz if Salah out?

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Yep unless if I do straight swap Mo to Diaz.

        Mo & Saka to Son & Diaz (-4) is an option but not liking it

    Any chance TAA Salah Kasper all fail to start so I get AitNouri 11 points off the bench?

    But then I probably should not complain after the BB success last week...

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 6 Years

      i think hell come on for Kasper

      1. Esalman
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Just realized he won't come on no matter what. Oh well..

    2. NABIL - FPL otai

      TAA highly likely

      Well done great pick

        Cheers!

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen. What do you think of TAA's & Robbo's chances of starting tomorrow? Just curious ... er .... I mean .... just asking for friend.

    1. NABIL - FPL otai

      Very slim

      Hopefully they won't feature so I'd get them fresh for GW38 🙂

        Cheers Nabil - "my friend" has TAA but also Tsimikas and no Robbo.

    I know early doors, but which of these moves looks the best for GW38?

    A) Salah + Mateta --> Diaz + Kane (-8)
    B) Salah + Mateta --> Son + Toney (-8)
    C) Salah + Mateta + Broja --> Son + Vardy + 4.4 (-12)

    No Son or no Liverpool attacker is looking scary though

    1. NorCal Villan
        2 months, 23 days ago

        I too know early Doors, but i still prefer L.A. Woman

        1. Indpush

          Time to work on new material?

          1. NorCal Villan
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Me, or Jim Morrison et al.?

          Don’t take the hit. Have 8pts and start Salah. Probably end up better off

      • FusionFC

        Amartey to Sessegnon worth a hit, yes?

      • Lakesjohn
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Anyone know why Salah who I purchased for 12.8, is currently 13.2, is only showing 12.9 value for me to sell?!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          His price just dropped to 13.1m

        2. Lakesjohn
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Ah, because the values were updating as I was looking!

        FFS bus team has gone heavy at the back but know full well GW38 is always high scoring - I'm thinking 3 at the back will be the way to go, no?

      • 03farmboy

        Kane or son for last game of season?

        It's quite incredible watching the tensions at Goodison Park.

        Yet the British viewers have Villa v Burnley in the background on pay TV.
